BERNARD DESCHEEMAEKER - WORKS OF ART

Enamels, Sculpture and Works of Art from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Bernard Descheemaeker (°1964) studied art history at the university of Louvain. After museum experiences at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and the Rubens House in Antwerp, I worked for 10 years in the art trade. In September 2000, I founded my own gallery (located in Antwerp) which is specialized in enamels, sculptures and works of art from the middle ages, the renaissance and the baroque (c.1150-1650). My main specialities are Limoges painted enamels from the renaissance -with a current collection of more than 50 pieces- on the one hand and Northern European late gothic sculpture, mainly from Flanders (Brussels, Antwerp and Malines) on the other. Besides, I also present medieval champlevé enamels, gothic ivories, decorative bronze objects, tapestries, Antwerp ceramics and 17th century Flemish and Dutch paintings, oil sketches and drawings. I try to focus on top-quality objects for an international clientele comprising collectors and museums alike. In contrary to most dealers, I participate only very rarely in fairs, but present my newest acquisitions through my website (www.worksofart.be) and, in particular, through catalogues.
